Commercial Style Pre-Rinse Kitchen Faucet
Perfect finishing touch to our kitchen remodel
We remodeled our kitchen last month and needed the perfect "frosting" to finish it off. We knew the look we wanted but spending $300 or $400 on a faucet was not in the budget.
We found exactly what we wanted for $129 on your website! We were intimidated by the dimensions given in the product description and were worried it would be too tall! Not at all!
At any of the big box stores that same amount of money would buy a boring, poorly made regular faucet. The Kraus "restaurant style" faucet we purchased is amazing! It is heavy, well made and was easy to install. Ours didn't arrive in a bag but was well protected in a heavy duty, padded box. All the hardware was included - even the metal braided water lines!
It feels solid mounted on the counter, retracts and extends easily and has great water pressure on both settings.
The spray switch on the handle feels solid. It is push button and remains set to the last choice when you shut it off- very nice! On/off handle is very well made and easy to use and looks sweet.
The clean lines of this faucet fit into any kitchen and looks very "finished" once mounted in the granite.
While at the HD getting some plumbing parts for a disposer, I checked out the ONLY faucet of similar style there. It was $249 and felt flimsy compared to the Kraus. No question a great value, especially at these prices!

Not Reliable - Poor Design
I purchased 10 of these faucets to demo in an apt community I own. Three months after installation 3 out of 10 are defective. Parts have fallen off, spray head gets stuck in a setting, arm gets rigid and difficult to move side-to-side, and the design of the spray head is angled so that water is directed to the back of the sink - big concern if tenants won't keep it dry and prevent possible water damage. All these issues within 3 months is a huge disappointment. The price reflects the quality - you get what you pay for (except a $40 faucet would last longer and more reliably).

We did a major remodel to our galley kitchen and after hitting all the plumbing suppliers and big box stores looking for the "perfect" faucet and sprayer I came across the "Kraus" products online! I didn't want the pullout sprayer type because my husband was pretty rough on the old style separate sprayer we had that had been broke and hanging in the sink! I had never heard of this brand before, maybe because I am in the central region, but after all the great reviews and reasonable price, I ordered. The product was delivered quickly and boxed very professional. We have had it installed for about 2 weeks. It is very convenient to use and easy to switch from spray to stream. My husband also loves it and he is very particular! It was a great addition to our new kitchen!
I also purchased the soap dispenser which is very sturdy and high quality.

Worst faucet ever
We bought this faucet about 14 months ago while doing a kitchen remodel. I had already bought a Kraus farm sink and was very impressed with the quality of it so I thought I would try the faucet as well. The sprayer stopped working after about 6 months,the hose has started wearing and now it is leaking around the button for the sprayer. The rubber part of the sprayer button keeps coming off and when it does water sprays out and hits you. I am now looking for a replacement after only one year.

Good value !
The faucet arrived very timely and was installed without a glitch. It looks beautiful with the Kraus sink and works great. The quality is superb and the price was very reasonable. I would recommend to everyone ! It looks great in my "cottage " style kitchen.

Chose this faucet for two features: single hole design, because cleaning around one small site is so easy, and its spring feature. My husband is a remodeling contractor and said that the installation was quite straight forward and simple. The handle function is extremely smooth allowing for infinite positions. It is a sleek, heavy, professional looking faucet, which produces an impressive regular water flow as well as a great spray which does not allow for splashing on you when you place something under it, like my old Moen would do. Have only had it installed in my new kitchen for a few weeks, so time could tell a different story, but for now its perfect. Comes in its own protective, cloth bag too! Loved that!

Shy of 3 yrs in use, and happy so far
I purchased this unit for a sink in my barn on 9/29/10, and had installed a short time after it arrived. To date, I've had no issues with it. I appreciate the fact that you can switch from spray to stream easily without having to turn off the faucet (unlike the one in my home, which I am now looking to replace). Since I've had good luck with it to date, I am considering purchasing another one, and felt prompted to write a review since I've lived with this exact same model for almost three years now. Hopefully I'll enjoy the same degree of success for the one in my home.

Faucet looks great, functionality appears to slip
Beautiful faucet, looks expensive and has a clean chrome finish. We have been using this faucet for approximately 2 months and the quality appears to be slipping. It appears to be leaking near the handle causing water to build up behind the kitchen stink. The hose appears to be leaking slightly as well; however, it drips in the sink so it is not a big deal. We are moving and have ordered the faucet again... hoping this time it holds out as it's worth the chance for the price!!

Was good for 10 months
We loved this faucet for the first 10 months. Since then the alternate spray button has broken and now the normal water flow is all wonky. We're going to try to get a replacement, but of course we'll have to pay for a plumber to come out for the repair. Ugh.
